JK Rowling: One of the most friendly authors on social media
Rowling occasionally tweets on her official twitter account and this time her tweets caught a lot of attention.Not just her tweets but her answers to the questions about Harry Potter asked by her fans all over the world have been of great interest.
Like, a few days ago, a fan asked who her favorite character was, and surprisingly, she said “Dumbledore”.
Is JK Rowling a racist?
Considering so many racial fights going on in the world, verbally and on the internet, she denied the allegation that she chose her best characters to be white.Back in 2015, Rowling tweeted that she doesn’t necessarily believe that Hermione had to be white.
She said she only wrote about her specific main features such as her brown eyes, frizzy hair, and a clever girl.She further added, “Rowling loves black Hermione”.
The same year, people asked her why Harry had named his son Snape. J.K Rowling tweeted back:
” In honoring Snape, Harry hoped in his heart that he too would be forgiven. The deaths at the Battle of Hogwarts would haunt Harry forever.”
Is she emotional about her characters? Explains JK Rowling Tweets
JK Rowling Tweets clearly give us a vision of how sensitive and emotional as well as strong some writers can be even when talking about the death of their own fictional characters. In one of the tweets she wrote,
“Arthur lived, so Lupin had to die. I’m sorry. I didn’t enjoy doing it. The only time my editor ever saw me cry was over the fate of Teddy. ”
When JK Rowling had to apologize to kill fictional characters in their novels
Also, sometimes, people just don’t find it enough to understand the ‘character of a character’ within the movie or book, so several questions regarding Snape was raised. And to that, J.K Rowling tweets:
“Snape didn’t die for ‘ideals’. He died in an attempt to expiate his own guilt. He could have broken cover at any time to save himself but he chose not to tell Voldemort that the latter was making a fatal error in targeting Harry. Snape’s silence ensured Harry’s victory. ”
But some fans were upset, so she apologized:
“OK, here it is. Please don’t start flame wars over it, but this year I’d like to apologize for killing (whispers)… Snape. *runs for cover*”
Are other writers as generous as JK Rowling when it comes to mispronunciation of their characters?
The main misconception and mispronunciation of a character in the book came into realization when J.K Rowling Tweets hit the platform of Twitter.
Someone reminded the Harry Potter fans that the letter ‘T’ was silent in Voldemort’s name and to that she tweeted:
“…but I’m pretty sure I’m the only person who pronounces it that way.”
Seems to us, she wasn’t upset with the mispronunciation of such an important character’s name. She knew 90% or more of the fans hardly knew this fact.
The Most Controversial of all the JK Rowling Tweets
Finally, we have the most recent ‘controversial’ tweets that accuse J.K Rowling, as always, of transphobia. On June 6th, 2020, Rowling commented on an op-ed about healthcare inequality. The phrase says “people who menstruate”. To which she wrote:
“People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there is a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?”
And the further, Rowling tweeted:
“If sex isn’t real, there’s no same-sex attraction. If sex isn’t real, the live reality of women globally is near the end. I know and love trans people, but erasing the concept of sex removes the ability of many to meaningfully discuss their lives. It doesn’t hate to speak the truth.”
She further added:
“I respect every trans person’s right to live any way that feels authentic and comfortable to them. I’d march with you if you face discrimination against on the basis of being trans. At the same time, my life is in shape by being female. I do not believe it’s hateful to say so.”
